    Way to stay motivated Suma! Clothes fitting better are always a great sign that this is working.

    Got 1.5 miles in this morning and will go for another tonight.

    Made a huge pot of veggie soup also this AM. I plan on living on it for a few days. Had a smoothie for b-fast and just ate a bowl of that wonderful soup for lunch with a little protein milk. Dinner will be - you guessed it, SOUP!

    A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection.

    He asked an elderly man, "Where does this road take me?"

    The elderly person asked, "Where do you want to go?"

    The man replied, "I don't know."

    The elderly person said, "Then take any road. What difference does it make?"

    Keep your eye on the prize, keep plugging along and don't lose those goals girls!

    Dinner = 633 cals and I was low on carbs so I did the apple rather than the greek yogurt
    Day's total cals eaten = 1241
    BMR approx. 1775
    Exercise burned 500 cals
    Daily caloric deficit = 1000+

    That is how I figure it.

    There are 3500 calories in a pound.... so if I keep that up, I should be on track to lose about 2 pounds this week

    My body said to my head, "I am not walking tonight"

    My head said to my belly, "Then you are not eating tonight"

    My belly said to both, "Oh - bullCRAP"

    I just returned from my 1.5 mile evening walk......

    (and just so you know, there are 3 major hills on this 1.5 mile course that I take 2 x's a day....)

    My body jumped up this morning and said, "Let's WALK!"

    My head said, "We have to be at work at the grocery soon, and we will be on our feet all day, you sure about this?"

    My body said, "Let's W.A.L.K."

    My belly said, "How about eating?"

    My body said, "W-A-L-K"...~!

    Another 1.5 miles under the belt. Smoothie in the belly. Head ready to go to work.

    Just another Day In Paradise....

    SS you are motivating me to get my butt in gear and walk. Yesterday I walked to the grocery store and back...a whopping 15 blocks total. Ah well, we start with baby steps.

    Baby steps Peanut, baby steps.

    On Monday when I first started walking the route it took me 30 mins. (Trust me, I was in no hurry, and it was in the early evening so it was really, really hot out there.)
    This morning I did the route in 19 mins. And I wasn't running down the road. In fact, 10 mins of the time I was talking with my mother on the telephone.

    I figure 1.5 miles 2 times a day. It's a walk right out my front door and back again. At least I can do this much.... (coming from someone who USED to walk for hours at a time every day)....

    Keep up the good work girl!!!

    Another 1.5 tonight. Had to once again tell myself to do it. But I am glad that I did now that it's all over.

    Smoothie for b-fast, soup for lunch & soup/salad for dinner. Snack- a cup full of steamed broccoli. And of course I had to taste my zucchini stir fry that I made up from fresh zucchini's from the garden. That will be tomorrow's lunch maybe over a baked sweet pot.

    Soup is all gone, got to get another pot made up so that I have an easy, go-to food around.

    Hope everyone else is staying motivated and losing!!!

    Sorry- can't weigh until Sunday morning. That's the rule with my girlfriend and I who are dieting together. So my tally will have to be in next weeks (give you something to look forward to- lol)....

    Sorry you are stuck under the wagon wheels - we are here to give you a hand and get you pulled back up into the wagon... Ready, grab hold.....

    The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends. ~Author Unknown

    No diet will remove all the fat from your body because the brain is entirely fat. Without a brain, you might look good, but all you could do is run for public office. ~George Bernard Shaw
